To kick off the festivities, the library hosted the ninth annual "Italian Film at the Library" on Thursday night. Human Capital is an award-winning film by Italian director Paolo Virzi. The event had a great turnout and was sponsored by the Italian Film Festival of St. Louis. Free gelato was provided by Spirito's, the Italian Store on Main Street.
We also have displays dedicated to our in-house collection of Italian materials, including cookbooks, language kits, children's educational material, and tomes on folklore and tradition.
The fourth annual "Mini Golf in the Library" will be running all day Friday and Saturday. Each of the nine holes is dedicated to an event in the last 100 years to celebrate the library's centennial. Admission is only $3 and proceeds benefit library programming but the first 100 guests play for free. This is a fun and creative way to explore the library and is a blast for kids and the whole family. The staff works hard on this event all year so please support our efforts and come see what all the fuss is about.
